Classroom Management Online and in Real Time

Have you heard of ClassDojo.com?  It may be one of the best kept secrets out there – but no longer!  As the school year begins and we start wondering what our classes are going to be like, we now have an ally in the battle for classroom management! We all know that behavior management is crucial to success. Without it, your class never seems to get off of the ground, and the environment can easily go from bad to worse.  

ClassDojo helps you to give positive reinforcement to students, as well as warnings to improve behaviors. These are all viewed by the class using your projector, and are especially effective when used with a SMART Board. Students hear a pleasant sound for positive behavior, and a negative sound for warnings. All data is tracked and reports can be downloaded or set to email directly to parents. How about that! You can also control ClassDojo from anywhere in the room using the app for your smart phone!  ClassDojo is a free online program to make your life as a teacher a little more manageable. Create the expectation for good behavior the first day of school using ClassDojo!
